Centraal Station Rotterdam

Architecture, Bus

Rotterdam Central Station is also referred to as the international gateway to Rotterdam. Every day, about 110,000 travelers pass through Central Station to use the bus, tram, metro or train. Intercity trains from all over the Netherlands (including Intercity Direct), Thalys, Eurostar and other international high-speed trains stop here several times a day or even hourly.

The Central Station has had a total metamorphosis in recent years and the station building is now one of the architecture icons of Rotterdam. The roof above the tracks is partly covered with solar panels and flows smoothly into the hood above the station hall. The tip of this points to the center of the city. A number of historical elements of the old station building (1957) by Sybold van Ravesteyn have been preserved, such as the original clock on the front facade, the letters Centraal Station (now executed in LED lighting) and the ‘speculaasjes’, two granite sculptures on the platform. 1.

In the wide hall leading to the platforms you will find about 25 shops, including Dudok, Starbucks, Rituals and Sissy Boy.
